Netflix’s new fantasy series The Witcher isn’t just filled with ravens, sexy moments, and spells. It’s also got witches and one oddly catchy song about coin tossing. Basically it has everything Game of Thrones had, minus the stupid ending. And that means there’s plenty of great Witcher memes.
What Is The Witcher?
The Witcher began as a series of novels written from 1993 to 2013 by Polish author Andrzej Sapowski. It was adapted into a video game by CD Projekt Red in 2008, and producer Lauren Schmidt Hissrich brought it to Netflix in December 2019.
Hissrich is also responsible for Daredevil, The Defenders, The West Wing, and these dark circles under our eyes.
The books and Netflix series chronicle the adventures of Geralt of Rivia, a powerful witcher (aka monster bounty hunter) who we totally don’t want to climb like a tree. The fact that he’s played by Henry Cavill doesn’t hurt.
In each adaptation of The Witcher, the storyline, beasts, and love triangles grow more dangerous. And when Geralt isn’t trudging through a booby-trapped, enchanted forest, we get to meet two of the strongest magical women on television: The sorceress Yennefer (Anya Chalotra) and the young princess Ciri (Freya Allan).
